Mebbe. But, ask a middle child from the 70's and see what response you get? (Uhm, you're not a middle child, are you?)

No. I'm not sure the relevance of the middle child thing - you're not gonna make me go look up the lyrics to this abominable song, are you?

No, my dear. Middle child syndrome cannot be found in the lyrics of Terry Jacks's #1 international hit.

MCS is the cross that must be borne by all children that are neither first born nor last born. It is particularly acute in those from 3-children households. It dilutes exponentially as the house becomes more and more engorged with siblings, thus, the 7th of 11 children bears a middle child syndrome of about the size of a crucifix.

Not that I am personally greatly affected by MCS but my bumpersticker does read:

"Have you Hugged your middle child today?"

Now, I have to go meet my middle child, and the other two, on their way home from school.

well, I know what the middle child syndrome is supposed to be, I just still don't get what it has to do with this song.

"....is supposed to be,"

"NON-BELIEVER!"
